The experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Mudigere to study the effect of fertigation on quality and biochemical parameters of strawberry fruits. The experiment consists of eight treatments, each treatment was replicated four times in Completely Randomized Design. Among the treatments, 100% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) through fertigation (T8) recorded significantly higher fruit yield per plant (384-391 g) and fruit quality parameters [fruit weight (17-18 g), fruit volume (18-19 cc), fruit length (4.00-4.14 cm) and fruit diameter (4.08-4.14 cm)]. However, it was at par with T7 (75% RDF through fertigation). With respect to biochemical parameters same treatment (T8) has recorded significantly higher values of all the parameters viz., reducing sugar (5.87%), non reducing sugar (1.96%), total sugar (7.87%), sugars: acid ratio (10.55), ascorbic acid content (69.27 mg/100 g) and titratable acid content (0.93%). Whereas, the total soluble solids (10.27 0B) were found the maximum in the treatment supplied with 25% RDF through soil + 75% RDF through fertigation (T6) and thus it can be concluded that T8 was the best treatment for improving the yield, quality and biochemical parameters of strawberry fruit.
